Mission Statement

The Design and Manufacturing Laboratory (DML) in the Mechanical Engineering Department at the University of New Hampshire exists for the purpose of creating new ideas and concepts that enrich society, for educating both graduate and undergraduate students by teaching them how to perform independent research which conforms to the highest standards of honesty, integrity and quality.

The DML seeks to accomplish this purpose by achieving excellence in research related to Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machining processes.  Our goal is to create the knowledge infrastructure for a new generation of "Smart Machining Systems" capable of producing high quality machined parts in a reliable, robust and rapid fashion.

We are committed to integrity in recognizing the contributions of the research community external to the DML, in publishing our results in a timely and honest fashion and in helping each student realize their full potential.
